Purpose

You may wish to remove Crowd version and build number from the footer of Crowd logon and other pages to prevent that information from being visible to your end-users or to avoid potential vulnerabilities or limitations from being exposed. 

Solution

To remove version information from the login page

  1. Open the <crowd-installation-directory>/crowd-webapp/console/decorator/wrm.jsp file with a text editor
  2. Uncomment the following line at the bottom of the file 

    From this:
    <input id="crowd-version" type="hidden" value="<ww:text name="common.words.version"/>:&nbsp;<ww:property value="@com.atlassian.crowd.util.build.BuildUtils@getVersion()"/>">
    To this
    <!--<input id="crowd-version" type="hidden" value="<ww:text name="common.words.version"/>:&nbsp;<ww:property value="@com.atlassian.crowd.util.build.BuildUtils@getVersion()"/>">-->
  3. Save the file

To remove version information from the other pages
